36 Denmark 78.3 76.0 80.6
37 Cuba 78.3 76.2 80.4
38 United States 78.2 75.6 80.8
39 Portugal 78.1 75.0 81.2

Coffee Consumption (per capita)

Finland 11.4 kg
Aruba 9.2 kg
Iceland 9.1 kg
Norway 9 kg
Denmark 8.1 kg
Sweden 7.9 kg
Bermuda 7.5 kg
Switzerland 7.4 kg
Netherlands 6.8 kg
Germany 6.6 kg
Italy 5.7 kg
Slovenia 5.6 kg
Austria 5.5 kg
France 5.4 kg
Malta 5.1 kg
Belgium 5 kg
Croatia 5 kg
Lebanon 4.9 kg
Brazil 4.7 kg
Greece 4.6 kg
Latvia 4.4 kg
Portugal 4.3 kg
United States 4.2 kg
Brunei 4.1 kg
Canada 4 kg
Cyprus 4 kg
Spain 4 kg
Costa Rica 3.9 kg
Israel 3.8 kg
Republic of Macedonia 3.7 kg
Hungary 3.5 kg
New Zealand 3.5 kg
Algeria 3.3 kg is ranked

Japan has highest life expectancy, but their per capita consumption is ranked 37th. So no correlation? Wrong- they may only consume 3.7kg of coffee per year but its the GOOD stuff (Jamaican Blue Mountain and Sumatra Mandehling). Note Aruba (Jamaica) has the second highest consumption in the world (Jamaican Blue mountain is good!).

The Nordic countries all have very high coffee consumption (Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Denmark) all in top 7. Their life expectancy is aso good- Iceland, despite being blody cod, is third- Sweden 7th. Finland somewhat slips up- but I think that has more to do with smoking stats than anything else.

The big surprise is Italy that in Life Expectancy bats in at 12th (despite the driving). The Italians consume 41 Billion cups of coffee a year- so I think that this proves the bean is a lexir of long levity.

I also find it very interesting that some of the producing countries where "the good stuff" is grown (and drunk) bat above their weight in Life expectancy- see Martinique (18th), Costa Rica (30th), Cuba (37th)

Now the USA is only ranked 38th in life expectancy (and 23rd in coffee consumption). I reckon you guys get your consumption per capita up to around 5kg a year) and you will put the health care industry out of business.

NB- the above research is totally based on a lot of guess work and a great deal of BS! Also I have not had my flatwhite this am yet :grin:

Researchers have claimed that drinking a cup of coffee everyday could be the secret to long life. According to a study, people who drank one to two cups of coffee a day had more elastic arteries than those who drank little or no coffee, reports the Daily Mail.

I prefer to read about the positive benefits of coffee. Don't see how a bean and it's natural caffeine can be bad for you.

I think really eating any organic plant matter (with a few exceptions...) increases longevity. For example eating a plant based diet leads to lower cholesterol and a more nutrient dense diet.

Herbs and spices have been found to increase life expectancy. A big one being cumin... people have started adding this spice in almost daily because they they want to be healthy. Any tea or coffee would essentially act the same way as a herb or spice would. The healthiest probably being Matcha. I also heard good things about Yerba-Mate.

The only negative thing about coffee (not including cream or sugar or if you have cheap processed coffee) I could possibly come up with is its acidic content. The acidity is not good for your stomach.... but in moderation it's not too bad. The good definatly out weighs the bad

Health benefits of coffee

Not ANY organic plant matter is healthy... of course there are poisonous mushrooms, for instance. Longevity is increased when the plant assists in overall human health. I think brewed coffee is so good for us that even its acidity and the addition of cream and sugar do not negate the benefits of the high concentration of anti-oxidants in coffee. It is fun to look at longevity stats of people from around the world. Compare that with people who drink the most coffee. There is a very close match! Finland seems to be the exception. High coffee consumption, but not improved longevity. My theory: their excessive alcohol consumption effectively undermines the benefits of the coffee. But seen another way, without the coffee, their life spans would be even shorter. Coffee is known to reduce liver disease.

I am guessing that the US has lower life expectancy due to diet and soda consumption. Diet soda is very bad for you and anything with corn syrup is right behind it. I have heard that coffee has great health benefits though and that is why I drink a few cups a day... ok maybe not but if anyone asks that is what I will say!
